    Hello everyone, I am new to the forums and unfortunately it's a big problem that brought me here :sad:

    I have a D2G and tried to sbf back to Froyo so I could install Cynogenmod 7 (as far as I know 9 doesn't have GSM support, which I need).

    I have successfully flashed before with RSDlite 4.9, but this time I tried the EZflash. The program ran successfully, but then on my phone was the Bootloader Do.11, Error Service Req'd

    I then tried to flash two of the stock SBFs with RSDlite and got the same error message. :-(

    It seems that a short of some sort occurred? Is my phone truly bricked?

    Thanks so much in advance for your help.

    (also, sorry if this is the wrong forum!!)

    in future, if you reply to a thread, you may get helped faster

    maybe bricked
    what versions did you flash
    did you pull battery before flashing

    it went straight to bootloader after ezSBF, or never rebooted

    Thanks for your reply!

    I flashed the ezSBF, version 2.4.33.iso, as I didn't have access to a Windows PC at the time. The program ran with no errors and said it was complete, but the error message showed up after rebooting. Bootloader Do.11, a list of errors, and Mem_Map blank.

    I then flashed the stock 4.5.608 sbf with RSD lite on a Windows computer, which has worked before, and the program ran successfully but the error message came up after rebooting. I then flashed the DROID2WE_X6_2.4.29_FULL.sbf, which also ran fine through RSD lite, but the same issue occurred.

    I'm thinking that somehow the first flash damaged the bootloader? Ie. The few others who have gotten this error message (and posted about it) had dropped their phones in water! But I'm not sure...not optimistic tho, and of course I am (only) 2 months past warranty. :icon_frown:

    I did take the battery out before flashing and the phone did go through the sbf process: in progress, complete, then started reboot to the bootloader. Never saw a red M since the first flash.

    Any help or advice would be much appreciated :)

    I did verify the file. I was really surprised that it failed as none of the users reported having comments with it on the thread.

    I suppose it is really gone, then. What a good GSM phone--I might actually just replace it rather than buy a new model as I loved having a keyboard.

    Thanks for the support :smile: My theory atm is that it short-circuited, because the few other instances of this error seemed to be linked to electrical failures. But I am hardly an expert...I

    Yeah, I do want another d2g!! Can't beat a GSM phone with a keyboard. Unfortunately I live overseas and am not buying the Milestone or its variations. Locked bootloader=not fun. I got the d2g in the states for cheap, and any US replacement would also be cheap, but the question is how to get it over here..:unsure:

    Just to clarify, I have been reading a lot of posts that claim the new gingerbread update blocks the use of sbfing to older versions of the android opperating system. It also is not rootable. So it may be possible that you updated and tried to revert back to an older version (froyo) and that bricked your phone. Your phone currently is bricked, but if an sbf is released for gingerbread (hopefully soon) your phone can be saved!! So, I wouldn'r chuck the old one out just yet because your luck could change in the next few months. Also hopefulyy this will help someone out.

    The MEM_MAP BLANK error is from the update blocking SBFing to a previous version. You had the OTA update, as other posters have mentioned, you have a paperweight for now.
